ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — Prosecutors say in the final minutes of his life, semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd sent a series of text messages to his sister.
"Did you see who I was with?" said the first, at 3:07 a.m. June 17. "Who?" she finally replied.
"NFL," he texted back, then added: "Just so you know."
Moments later, 27-year-old Lloyd would be dead in what authorities say was an execution-style shooting orchestrated by New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez because his friend talked to the wrong people at a nightclub.
Hernandez was charged with murder and five weapons counts on Wednesday. A judge ordered him held without bail. If convicted, 23-year-old Hernandez could get life in prison without parole.
Hernandez was cut from his NFL team less than two hours after his arrest.
